Currently, she serves as executive producer and lead of Freeform’s "black-ish" spinoff series, "grown-ish." She also executive produces and stars in Meta’s new interview show, "Yara Shahidi’s Day Off," where she joins her celebrity peers and gets a glimpse into their lives through a variety of experiences that reflect their authentic interests outside of their fame. Recently, Shahidi voiced Callie in Netflix’s animated film, "My Father’s Dragon."

Inspired by her extensive work with President and First Lady Obama, Shahidi founded Eighteen x 18, now called WeVoteNext, to shine a light on Gen Z and BIPOC inclusion in the political process. A sought-after public speaker, Shahidi has appeared in conversation with university peers and thought leaders such as: Dr. Angela Davis, President Obama, Harry Belafonte Jr., former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Dr. Cornell West, Senator Cory Booker, and Senator Rev.
